Little girl died in cot after flu jab

Little girl died in cot after flu jab 26 Apr 2010 The bereaved father of a toddler who died within a day of receiving the seasonal flu vaccine said last night that he could not believe this was coincidental. David Epapara spoke out after the Queensland Coroner was called in to investigate the little girl's death, which has intensified concern at the risk of side effects from the vaccine to children under five. Two-year-old Ashley Epapara was found dead in her cot on April 9, the morning after she and her twin sister were inoculated by the family GP in Brisbane. Mr Epapara told The Australian yesterday that both children had been "perfectly fine" until they received the combined jab for seasonal flu and swine flu.

Goldman Cited 'Serious' Profit on Mortgages

Goldman Cited 'Serious' Profit on Mortgages 24 Apr 2010 In late 2007, as the mortgage crisis gained momentum and many banks were suffering losses, Goldman Sachs executives traded e-mail messages saying that they would make "some serious money" betting against the housing markets. The messages, released Saturday by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, appear to contradict statements by Goldman that left the impression that the firm lost money on mortgage-related investments. In the messages, Lloyd C. Blankfein, the bank’s chief executive, acknowledged in November 2007 that the firm had lost money initially. But it later recovered by making negative bets, known as short positions, to profit as housing prices plummeted.

In Army's Trauma Care Units, Feeling Warehoused

In Army's Trauma Care Units, Feeling Warehoused 24 Apr 2010 Created in the wake of the scandal in 2007 over serious shortcomings at [Bush privatized] Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Warrior Transition Units were intended to be sheltering way stations where injured soldiers could recuperate and return to duty or gently process out of the Army... But interviews with more than a dozen soldiers and health care professionals from Fort Carson’s transition unit, along with reports from other posts, suggest that the units are far from being restful sanctuaries. For many soldiers, they have become warehouses of despair, where damaged men and women are kept out of sight, fed a diet of powerful prescription pills and treated harshly by noncommissioned officers.

Wis. woman braves traffic, saves 14 ducklings

Wis. woman braves traffic, saves 14 ducklings 24 Apr 2010 A mother duck didn't survive her walk across a busy Wisconsin roadway, but a motorist made sure the 14 ducklings stayed safe — even one that wiggled under her dashboard. Angela Speed of the Wisconsin Humane Society says the good Samaritan was driving in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb, on Friday when she saw the newly hatched mallards trying to cross a busy road. The woman told Speed that a vehicle in front of her appeared to intentionally hit the mother duck, leaving her ducklings confused in the middle of the road. [One can only hope that the sociopath that intentionally hit the mother duckling meets a similar -- or, better yet -- *exact* fate.]

House passes Vt.'s own take on health reform

House passes Vt.'s own take on health reform 23 Apr 2010 Vermont lawmakers made clear Friday that recently enacted federal health care reform did not go far enough toward a public model, passing legislation that could bring to the state the "public option" health insurance rejected by Washington or even a Canadian-style single-payer system. By a vote of 91-42, the Democratic controlled House passed its own version of legislation passed earlier by the Senate. Both bills call for designing a single-payer system, in which a government agency would administer and make all payments for health care.

H1N1 vaccine study investigating 'significant complications' from vaccine

H1N1 vaccine study investigating 'significant complications' from vaccine 24 Apr 2010 Federal health officials are investigating the first hints of any possible significant complications from the H1N1 vaccine, but stressed that the concerns will probably turn out to be a false alarm [only when the cover-up reaches critical mass]. The latest analysis of data has detected what could be a somewhat elevated rate of Guillain-Barré syndrome, which can cause paralysis and death; Bell's palsy, a temporary facial paralysis; and thrombocytopenia, which is a low level of blood platelets, officials reported Friday. [Wow! This 'I told you so' came much quicker than even *I* had anticipated! And, it's going to be so much better when Baxter's larvae-laden dog cells and E.coli are added to flu vaccines after the 'third wave' of this phony pandemic arrives in the fall. --LRP]

Colleague Disputes Case Against Anthrax Suspect

Cheney's anthrax false flag chickens come home to roost: Colleague Disputes Case Against Anthrax Suspect 22 Apr 2010 A former Army microbiologist who worked for years with Bruce E. Ivins, whom the F.B.I. has blamed for the anthrax letter attacks that killed five people in 2001, told a National Academy of Sciences panel on Thursday that he believed it was impossible that the deadly spores had been produced undetected in Dr. Ivins’s laboratory, as the F.B.I. asserts. Asked by reporters after his testimony whether he believed that there was any chance that Dr. Ivins, who 'committed suicide' in 2008, had carried out the attacks, the microbiologist, Henry S. Heine, replied, "Absolutely not." At the Army’s biodefense laboratory in Maryland, where Dr. Ivins and Dr. Heine worked, he said, "among the senior scientists, no one believes it."

US may be weaponising space

US may be weaponising space 24 Apr 2010 The weaponisation of space. This is what some critics are calling the recent launch by the United States Air Force (USAF) of an unmanned space shuttle called X-37B. The shuttle is 9 meters (29ft) long and has a 4.5 meter (15ft) wingspan and is, therefore, just under one quarter the size of a regular space shuttle. If it [unfortunately] returns to earth successfully, and the USAF has indicated it sees no reason why it should not, it will be the first autonomous launch and re-entry in US history.
